Wheel presses make mounting/dismounting wheels and other components on wheelsets, such as brake discs and gears, possible with just one operator.
Mechan is the UK and Ireland’s sole supplier of adaptable wheel presses, manufactured by sister firm, SEG (Sogema Engineering). The high performance, high quality units are designed to suit rolling stock maintenance and wheelset production, saving time and improving productivity.
SEG’s ‘double cylinder’ configuration means there is no need to reposition the wheelset between pressings. An ergonomic operator station, with user friendly HMI screen, also makes controlling operations simple.
Choose from three versions of wheel press, offering separate mounting and dismounting or dual functionality. They can be installed without the need for civil works and adapted to your specific needs, thanks to a range of optional extras, including:
- Overhead gantry crane
- Measuring arm
- Calibration set
- High pressure oil injection device (for dismounting)
- Preparation stand
- Loading trolley
Each press is equipped with auto diagnostic functions that give clear operator guidance. Preventative maintenance contracts are also available, delivered by Mechan’s skilled engineers, who will ensure your wheel press works efficiently throughout its lifetime.
